My blogshop update

I know it's been a quiet year... not much new stocks and not many bazaars... but rest assured I've been busy hence the lack of visibility of my blogshop off and online.

Well, for one, I've been busy crocheting, sewing and even cross-stitching! More on crocheting as amigurumi dolls are quite addictive! After a thorough discussion with hubs, I have decided of transitioning from a full mobile + ladies accessories blogshop to a partly mobile + ladies accessories and partly handmade products + supplies blogshop! *pops confetti*

If you had browse http://sholee.wordpress.com, you would have noticed some fabrics online... for a start lah. I'll eventually add on when my budget allows as the cost of handmade supplies is not cheap. As for the end products, you will see it during bazaars. I'll continue to add on mobile + ladies accessories but with more selective and unique designs.

Of course, part of the sales will still be channelled for charity as per previous years... status quo. Will check out what the malls will be collaborating with during Christmas *eager beaver*

Last but not least, thank you for your loyal support. I'm truly blessed and grateful for all your support for the past few years.

MPOV: Tao Cuisine

After all those scorching heat and tired limbs, we headed to Sunway Giza for an early dinner. Hubs found this restaurant by chance so thought of giving it a try since it was filled with rave reviews. The place was dimly lighted and laid back... very comfy with Asian fusion design. We were promptly shown to our seats after a brief welcome chatter. As I was scouring over the huge menu, hubs checked out the buffet and came back with these!
Finally a buffet with fresh oysters!!! Yay!!!
So yummy cheesy scallops!
Then I realised we were supposed to order from the menu the remaining dishes! The buffet was limited but the menu was filled with many wonderful dishes! No wonder the waiter kept turning up once I opened the menu!!! LOL! Anyway, only took photos of some of the dishes as we were busy eating away!
My view... it's the reception cum cashier
Abalone
Cold noodle
Ice-cream and fish fritters
Cheesy prawns
The view on my left
Their tag line 'Authentic Asian Cuisine' explains the menu choices, mostly Japanese fusion cuisines. I totally loved the fact that everything is freshly made and served, not left on the buffet for everyone to poke and abandoned coldness. I even had to order for sashimis which meant my salmon was totally fresh! I think there were only about 6 choices available on the buffet for customers to take like the oysters which were so fresh and succulent. I truly liked their concept which also prevents food wastage, so so cool!

The buffet dinner costs RM62++ so total bill was RM143.85 inclusive of 10% service charge and 6% gov. tax which we paid after we had eaten. It was worth it for all the freshness and oysters!!! In fact, most expensive buffets nowadays do not offer fresh oysters ler...

Rating: 4/5
Location: 2nd Floor, Sunway Giza Shopping Mall
Reservation hotline: 03-61482826

Anyway, this concludes my day out with hubs... can't wait for another round with more replacement public holidays on his off days ^.^

Amigurumi: Hello Kitty

Finally made a hello kitty doll... not so easy as the pattern I retrieved from was not exactly perfect as it was translated from the original source which was in Spanish. Unfortunately I couldn't find the translator's website to share, only have the original website... http://www.tejiendoperu.com/
Honestly need to perfect my felt cutting skills...
What I've used:

  • 100% acrylic yarns
  • Polyester fibre fills
  • Seal felt

Day date with le hubs: KL Butterfly Park

From Taman Orkid, we headed to the Butterfly Park next which was nearby... ticket was RM10 per adult. It was definitely cooler and had much more better blooms with so many butterflies and moths flying around! Unfortunately we noticed quite a number of dead butterflies too, not sure if it was due to a bird which must have accidentally came into the aviary. Totally loved the park with so many beauties flying around freely.


Hubs was practically proud a butterfly stopped by on his cap!









It was an eye-opener for me as I've not been to a butterfly park before, will definitely bring Angels here during the long school holidays *fingers crossed*

By 6pm, we were tired, famish and dry... LOL! I guess we are not getting younger! Time for dinner... in the next, final post!

What I've used:
  • 100% thick cotton yarn
  • 80 cm ribbon
  • Floral ornaments
